Chairman Wontumi, however, said the current suffering of half of the population of Ghana due to the arrival of the coronavirus.
He lamented that the travel ban made it difficult for traders to conduct their business freely.
“We all know about Covid-19. Before Covid-19, you could visit developed countries for the holidays but now travel is a prison. If you go to China, they will keep you in a hotel for one month. If you go to the UK, they will keep you in a hotel for ten days. America is the same. So when people complain, it's because traders can't walk. Because when they leave they have to spend their money at the hotel, ”he said.
Despite acknowledging the obstacles, Chairman Wontumi was optimistic that the NPP would ‘break 8’.
Therefore, he warned the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) that they would not stop the ruling party from achieving that goal.
"I want to tell the NDC that you denied us in 2009 but you cannot deny that we won the 2024 elections. It's a movement. Winning 2024, 2028 and 2032 is a move," he stated.
